Over Half Million Mobile Robots to be Shipped to Warehouses Globally in 2030

The supply chain industry has surged its warehouse automation efforts considering the e-commerce boom and labor scarcities. In addition to solutions such as headphone-enabled voice-picking and exoskeletons that reduce human effort, mobile robots are proving to be the most prevalent productivity-enhancing solution in the warehousing sector. According to ABI Research, worldwide mobile robot shipments in warehouses will have a Compounded Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of almost 40% from 2021 to 2030 and exceed 500,000 global shipments in 2030.

“Productivity technologies can achieve far greater return on investment if correctly combined with other technologies. For example, by combining location tracking data with a voice solution, warehouses using a Warehouse Execution System (WES) platform can optimize workflows by minimizing distance traveled based on where the worker is,” states Adhish Luitel, Industry Analyst, Supply Chain Management and Logistics.

Over 2 Billion Devices Will be Shipped with a Dedicated Chipset for Ambient Sound or Natural Language Processing By 2026

Natural Language Processing (NLP) and ambient sound processing are traditionally considered exclusive cloud technologies and this has restricted their adoption in markets where security, privacy, and service continuity are critical elements for deployment. However, the advancements in deep learning compression technologies and edge Artificial Intelligence (AI) chipsets are now enabling these technologies to be integrated at the end-device level, which could mitigate security and privacy concerns while ensuring enabled services can be delivered consistently without interruption. ABI Research estimates over 2 billion end devices will be shipped with a dedicated chipset for ambient sound or natural language processing by 2026.

"NLP and ambient sound processing will follow the same cloud-to-edge evolutionary path as machine vision. Through efficient hardware and model compression technologies, this technology now requires fewer resources and can be fully embedded in end devices," says Lian Jye Su, Principal Analyst, Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning. "At the moment, most of the implementations focus on simple tasks, such as wake word detection, scene recognition, and voice biometrics. However, moving forward, AI-enabled devices will feature more complex audio and voice processing applications."

Active antennas are essential to 5G deployments (Analyst Angle)

RCR Wireless News (written by ABI Research Analyst Jun Wei Ee)

The telecommunications industry including Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs), such as Ericsson, Huawei, Nokia, and ZTE, as well as standards organizations, and industry associations, such as the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), ITU Radiocommunication Sector (ITU-R), 5G Americas, and NGMN Alliance, have contributed to the development and standardization of active antennas.

Organizations such as the 5G Americas have defined active antennas as “integrated radio and antennas,” whereas the NGMN Alliance have defined active antenna system (AAS) as an antenna that also contains active electronic components in addition to passive components that can be found in passive antennas.
